Sensory profile

Ruby red tending to garnet. The nose flaunts rich, clean-edged toasty oak from traditional ageing, plus flowers and berries suggesting blueberries, ending with raspberry and strawberry. Full and dense in the mouth, with vigourous tannins, and a delicately spicy, full-flavoured finish.

 

Serving suggestions

Fillet of beef with formaggio di fossa, free-range chicken alla cacciatora, baked capon.

 

 

Serving temperature 18°C. Open the bottle an hour before serving, and decant.
